Samarco eyes restart in 2019, when Brazil license analysis concludes

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Iron miner Samarco, a joint venture of Brazil’s Vale SA and Australia’s BHP Billiton Ltd, expects to obtain next year all licenses needed to resume operations suspended after an environmental disaster, according to a written statement to Reuters on Tuesday.
